I have been following the Skateistan organization for a couple of years now and I think they do just incredible work with the children of Afghanistan. Just by giving Afghani kids a place in the world they build community and truly affect positive growth.
It is so easy for us to make sweeping blanket statements about countries such as Afghanistan and I applaud Skateistan for helping people see things from a new perspective.
They build ramps not bombs! Check it out.
